What a great start to the year! Thanks to all you goals who made it down to Mile End this week. We had a great time. Big shout-out to Hannah-Lily for booking us that gorgeous pub spot - see you again next week! Potm were Rachel for some excellent keeping, Rhi for some great feet, Hannah Wallace who could get it every week, Katherine on her return and Katie for asking all the right questions.


Firstly, a huge shout out to Paula who came all the way to Tooting on her birthday to join us for a muddy but joyous 11-a-side match. Happy birthday Paula!

Players Of The Match:

Debut star Mathilde who was a true game changer, battling it out on the wing and cresting so many beautiful runs of play.

Goal scoring superstar Katherine (double POTM week for KY), who dug deep all game before scoring a tenacious goal from a beautiful cross from River. Welcome back KY!

HBD Paula!


Player of The Kickaround was Kitty Burne - who was passing the ball around beautifully, scoring firey goals & doing amazing saves too! Welcome back KB!
